With its shorter days and days off, this time of the year tempts the modelmaker to start new projects. I try to resist temptation by beginning the new year with fewer unfinished projects on my desk.

One that has gone unfinished for too long is my model of a Central of Vermont boxcar, actually a modified BTS laser kit of a PRR 28' boxcar. Today it went through the paint shop.



Next step: Art Griffin decals.

Yeah... they burned down with some regularity. Lopez, PA had I believe 3 different kindling factories burn in the span of two years. Somewhere I have a photo of the interior of the bundling room. Kindling factories are such a distinctive industry. If you donít have the room for a full-blown logging operation with sawmill, the extended lumber industry has some fantastic opportunities for modelers. Kindling, clothespins, barrel staves, wood chemicals... all make for nice layout-sized industries with lots of cool traffic.

Mike, did you start whittling you huge piles of slab wood? Ha.

Looks very good Mike! That must have been a dangerous place to work with such flammable material.

Thank you, Bill!

Like Greg said, great looking model & industry.
Michael Hohn Posted - 02/19/2020 : 10:54:06 AM
Thank you, David!

Iíve long been interested in the logging industry and related enterprises like clothespin factories etc. I donít have room for a lumber mill and I came across photos of kindling wood factories, much more modest in size and interesting to me in appearance.

Mike,
Nice work on the kindling factory! I never knew they existed. It will add a lot of conversation to your layout!
Michael Hohn Posted - 02/19/2020 : 09:09:46 AM
Thank you Bernd and Andre! I appreciate your looking in.

Looking very good Mike! Really like the weathered wood effect you're getting.

Ah, a new project. Looks great Michael.

Something I notice about the photo of the prototype kindling factory: it has hardwood trees growing outside it. So I guess most or all of its raw material was slabs from nearby sawmills.


James,

Companies would often timber distant valleys first and work back toward the mill to avoid the chance of fire from sparks falling on slashings left behind by lumbering.

The factory in the photo above had an agreement with the neighboring lumber mill for the slabs, trimmings, etc. in fact they had to take all that was offered and dispose of extra slabs by selling them to a paper mill. Kindling wood factories, clothespin factories, stave mills and wood chemical plants were situated in the vicinity of a lumber mill if not actually next door.

Mike
